8.6 disastrous leave ... and bowled him! Mawoyo did not look comfortable in that over, Gabriel pitching it up and swinging the ball away, this one went straight on, maybe even nipped back a touch and clattered into the top of off as the batsman shouldered arms 42/1
    10.3 full toss on the stumps - and belted straight to mid-on, now Sibanda falls! Well, he's thrown that away after a sparkling start, another low full-bunger from Gabriel, not quite getting it right in search of the swing, Sibanda shaped to hit through midwicket but got it too straight, came low off the bat but not low enough, as Roach tumbled forward to claim the catch just above the ground 43/2
    18.6 and now bowled him with the doosra. After an over of significantly turning deliveries, this one has just gone straight on, beat the outside edge as the batsman tried to play forward for the turn and lost his middle and off stumps, brilliantly delivery, cracking over 64/3
    30.5 got him this time, and no need to review... Taylor bowled trying to reverse sweep! He goes for 33, his second-top score on this tour, but his team needed more from the captain. Trying to take the attack to Shillingford, he reversed the hands and tried to sweep, it pinballed around, off the chin and back on to the hand, before plopping on to the stumps. Shillingford has a second, Zimbabwe in a wee bit of trouble now 105/4
    47.3 wider on the crease, it slides on, beats the inside edge as Ervine plays forward and traps him on the pad and is given out lbw the finger goes up straight away. Did he get outside the line? Umpire's call says Hawk Eye. It was definitely hitting the stumps so a fair decision. The arm ball from Samuels, skidded on and has the breakthrough 141/5
    57.4 top-edged and gone! Williams' battling knock is ended by Samuels' gentle offbreaks, trying to paddle one fine, just enough turn off the pitch and it looped up off the edge, cannoned into the helmet on its way up and presented itself for short leg to pluck gratefully 161/8
    54.2 slog sweep, doesn't get all of it and finds deep midwicket Tino Best taking a good catch. Tried to take it from outside off but the sweep is so dangerous with the ball bouncing, it caught a thick top edge that went a long way up and was safely taken 15 yards in from the boundary 158/6
    55.6 fuller, inside edge and a sharp catch at short leg 158/7
    60.1 spinning in and rapped on the pads in front, the umpire gives it! Utseya asks for the review but it was more in hope than expectation and Hawk Eye shows it flattening leg. He was back when he should have been forward, the spin brought the ball back to pin him in front of middle and, although it hit him above the knee, no reprieve was forthcoming from DRS 171/9
    not out
    60.5 the wrong 'un, Chatara gets in a tangle, doesn't pick it and tries to leave - that's lbw, though he was probably hit on the groin, crouching very low and hoping the ball would spin past leg. That's Shillingford's five-for, another one in front of his home crowd, and Zimbabwe all spun out for the second innings running 175/10

    48.6 Luke was right! And what a catch from Jarvis! Gayle aimed to hit down the ground but he was hitting against the turn. He ended up slicing it high and far, towards wide long-off. Jarvis ran to his right from long-off, running forward. He then realised he had misjudged it and began running backwards to his right, diving full length to latch on to the ball as it fell over his shoulder. He covered so much ground to get to the ball 181/4
    6.4 full and swinging and BOWLED HIM! Powell's lickety-split innings is snuffed out but a big inswinger from Jarvis, it pitched around off and hooped back, Powell a little loose with his drive, gets an inside edge on to his pad and the ball rattles into the stumps 35/1
    8.2 throws the bat and Jarvis has another, Bravo edging a wide one to the keeper! His average heads further south, though this was something of a gift - and it brings Darren Bravo the first duck of his Test career. The ball was full and a good couple of feet outside off, Bravo stood statuesque and flashed hard, just a thin snick and Taylor took it at waist height, almost in front of first slip 35/2
    27.1 and that is just what Zimbabwe needed, bowled him first ball, excellent yorker and Samuels is too late on it and plays over the top, superb delivery first up and what a mood-booster for the tourists 114/3
    112.2 would you believe it? Chanderpaul has given it away! He's scooped the drive straight to cover, where Williams tumbled forward to take the catch. Chanderpaul waited a fraction to see if the catch was clean but began walking after the fielder indicated it was out. A real loose shot after hours of dogged determination, driving away from his body. Was it a clean catch? The ball seemed to go into the hands and then the cameras lost sight of it, and then it reappeared and some part of the ball might have touched the ground, difficult to tell with absolute certainty 370/7
    105.3 that's plumb, surely he can't review this one. Ramdin walks off. The only question is whether it pitched in line with leg stump, the umpire thought it did. Ramdin was caught on the back foot by a well flighted legbreak that pitched leg and spun a little to hit his back foot in front of middle. Gone. Finally Zimbabwe have a wicket, and it's Cremer's first wicket of the series 354/5
    109.1 caught at long on! Sammy was trying to clear the boundary but he didn't time it all that well. Masakadza was the fielder who took the catch 366/6
    not out
    112.3 bowled first ball! Roach went back to a tossed up offbreak from over the wicket, it pitched on off and spun towards middle. Roach played down the wrong line and Utseya is on a hat-trick 370/8

    18.2 oh dear what a shocking shot, played right across it and is plumb lbw but he reviews it, has he hit this? No. Is it too high? No, umpires call on Hawk Eye. Even if it was going over that deserved to be out because that was a disgusting shot. Standard full ball on off stump, slanting in, he went slightly back and just swiped right across it, missed, was caught above the knee roll but on the back foot and Tony Hill fired him out 64/3
    10.4 back of a length down the leg side, felt for, taken by Ramdin who was convinced of a touch through to him, this time not out is given and the West Indies now review. We're looking for a touch of the glove on the way through. I think he might have gloved it, the ball does change deviation slightly and it's as the ball passes the glove, is there enough evidence, yes! So this time Masakadza has to go 37/1
    17.6 little bit more bounce and caught at short leg. Really nicely bowled, turn and bounce from a length caught the batsman on the crease, it takes a little inside edge as he tried to fend it off, it comes off the pad and presented a very simple chance to short leg 64/2
    29.6 tries to force off the back foot but it's edged and taken at slip a good catch from Gayle going quickly to his left hand side with two hands, well held. Ervine followed it as it turned away from the off stump and got a thick edge but Gayle was alert and took the chance well 92/5
    25.1 saying that, this bounces and takes the top edge to point the ball was too close for the cut shot and he just lobbed it up in the air. Tried to get right back to cut but it went on with the arm cramping him and a little bounce sent the ball ballooning off a top edge to present a chance Chanderpaul could have taken with boxing gloves on 73/4
    38.1 out and you could barely have noticed by everyone's reaction. Length ball on leg stump, went to shovel it again around the corner but simply finds leg slip where Sammy holds onto a sharp chance 114/7
    31.2 turn and bounce, takes the inside edge to leg slip. It's really nice bowling but the batsman went nowhere with his feet and tried another tentative block but was beaten but the sharp turn and bounce that took the inside edge of the bat, popping up for an easy catch to Sammy at leg slip 96/6
    41.2 down the pitch, tries to go over the top but only chips it to midwicket. Five-for for Shillingford. Cremer didn't get to the pitch of the ball having come charging down the pitch, tried to over the infield but got a thick inside edge and it was a simple chance straight to the fielder 138/8
    not out
    42.1 length on leg stump and tucked into the hands of leg slip. It bounced a little and he fended it off trying to play off the back foot but it took the glove and again, found Sammy at leg slip who took a very easy catch, that's his third take of the innings 141/9
    42.2 floated up on the stumps, slog swept and finds deep midwicket. He cleared the front leg and swung hard into the leg side, got a decent connection but not enough and Gabriel took it solidly low with two hands 141/10

Match Notes

  • 'I'm back and I plan to stay' - Shillingford

    The Dominica pitch aided the spinners, and Shane Shillingford made the most of it, adding another five-for to the one he took in the first innings to finish with a match haul of 10 for 93

  • Chanderpaul thrives on 'pretty tough day'

    West Indies might have piled up a 206-run lead against Zimbabwe by the end of the second day in Dominica, but the pitch remains a tough one to bat on, according to Shivnarine Chanderpaul

  • 'I know I'm doing a good job' - Shillingford

    After his five-wicket haul on the first day in Roseau, offspinner Shane Shillingford has said the support shown by his team-mates and the management was indicative of his good work

  • Zimbabwe surrender to Shillingford, again

    It took just 42.2 overs on the third day for West Indies to clinch the second Test, sweep the series, win six Tests in a row and inflict another surrender to spin on Zimbabwe

  • Shillingford, Gayle put West Indies on top

    Shane Shillingford took five wickets as Zimbabwe collapsed to 175 all out shortly after tea on day one, before Chris Gayle's half-century tightened West Indies' control of the match
